Additionally, some of the parameters producing variances in emissions values from paper to paper are discussed.

Already, there are significant changes in mainstream gasoline and Diesel formulation to accommodate tighter emissions standards.
Some alternative fuels are being promoted as “cleaner” replacements for gasoline and Diesel fuel.
A life-cycle assessment of a vehicle involves production and post-use considerations.
A cradle-to-cradle design is more important than a focus on a single factor such as the type of fuel.
An alternative fuel vehicle is a vehicle that runs on a fuel other than traditional petroleum fuels (petrol or Diesel fuel); and also refers to any technology of powering an engine that does not involve solely petroleum (e.g.
electric car, hybrid electric vehicles, solar powered).
This non-adiabatic expansion has the potential to greatly increase the efficiency of the machine.
The only exhaust is cold air (−15 °C), which could also be used to air condition the car.
